I do not personally pay attention to whether or not a pattern is in the trend or not as I trade every pattern I see that meet my rules.
However I have had quite a few questions on this and how you can go about noting it down during your backtesting so I hope that those of you looking to add this to your backtesting analysis find this useful.
You want to gather as much information at the backtesting stage as possible (even if its something you may not use in your trading) so it will allow you to develop an optimum trading plan to suit you!
A great way to backtest advanced patterns whilst easily noting whether or not they are in the underlying trend move in the market during your backtesting.
